Former prime minister Jean Chrétien talks trade with the CBC's Catherine Mercier
Former prime minister Jean Chrétien cemented trade relations with China in the 1990s, bonds he continues to strengthen as president of the InterAction Council — a group of former heads of state.
Chrétien, who visits the country regularly, still enjoys privileged access to China's leaders. He said he is still trying to bring Ottawa and Beijing closer together.
